Mitzvoth of the Sword

Then said Jesus to them, “He that has a wallet should take it, and likewise your backpack (in which travelers carried their provisions). He that has no sword let him sell his garment, and buy one.”

The Knowledge from a Warrior

In reference to the eternal here and now there is only here and now. A warrior does not exist in the past and will not run from a battle.
The warrior knows there are no winners or losers’ in a battle. There are only three outcomes of any battle they are:

1. You both die.
2. Your opponent kills you.
3. You kill your opponent and live with knowledge and deal with the fact that you took a life.

At best the warrior has a one in three chance for survival in any battle followed by a lifetime of memories to deal with.

All three outcomes are the reality of armed conflict. No amount of training can predict the result of war.

The only enemy the warrior faces is the fear of death; you’re faced with your own death or the death of a person trying to kill you.

Death is the way of the warrior; he who follows the way of a warrior and picks up the sword finds death in becoming one with the sword.

Those who live by the sword die by the sword. The only honor in conflict is in giving your life for a friend, dying so that others can live.
